The spine is typically curved to reduce shock and distribute weight evenly along the length of the back. However, in some people, the natural curves in the spine are overly pronounced. This can cause pain and spasms in the lower back muscles, leading to a lower quality of life. Called lordosis, or sway back, the condition most often occurs in the back’s lumbar region, but it can also appear in the cervical spine. While it’s often congenital, obesity, pregnancy, poor posture, osteoporosis can also contribute. Seeing a skilled chiropractor is a good idea. Chiropractic care can help reduce or eliminate lower back pain caused by lordosis through chiropractic adjustments, or spinal manipulation may be utilized to restore normal functioning.
Maintaining proper body alignment, from head to toe, is important to overall health. For optimal musculoskeletal health, chiropractors help align not only the spine but the extremities as well. Many people visit a chiropractor because they are in pain, have poor posture, or are looking for injury prevention or pain relief. Our goal is to educate you on the benefits of the chiropractic adjustment, so you in turn can educate others.
P.S. Lordosis can be common in children.Schedule an Appointment
